Education is a key component of the behaviour change process.
Research now shows that traditional manual handling training has little to no effect, which is why Logic Health has developed a range of participative injury prevention packages, which are complemented by onsite coaching.
All our workshops are customised to your specific needs and risks, and provide realistic relevant solutions to your employees. These workshops can be conducted at prestart meetings, monthly safety meetings or can be integrated into site inductions. The workshops are designed to educate your employees on the musculoskeletal risk prevalent in their work tasks, and how this risk can effect their ability to carry out the job, or their quality of life. We then take employees through the key risk mitigation strategies and consult with them to make sure these strategies can be integrated into their jobs.
Some of our popular injury prevention workshops include:
Stretch Boss is an innovative program that is customised to the high risk musculoskeletal areas of your workforce. Stretch Boss is designed to prevent the frequent down falls of other stretching programs, and therefore have sustainability. The program aims to educate all individuals to conduct pre-start and regular stretching, which enables independence not dependence on two or three individuals to always lead the stretching sessions.
